The Princess Ushwa has a huge sunbathing area with a 360 degrees view at the top deck of the yacht.
It’s partly shaded but we still highly recommend to apply sunscreen, the Maldivian sun is a bright one and shows no mercy.
If you need to cool down simply jump in the water or look for a relaxing place at the mid deck, where a comfortable lounge is waiting.
The Princess Ushwa has plenty of space to relax and lay down. One of our favorite spot while cruising is at the front deck, overlooking the blue water with eyes on the wide horizon.
In accordance with your given itinerary The Princess Ushwa will stop at the most beautiful dive spots available.
A dive instructor or dive master gives the safety and dive instructions before you will discover the Maldivian reefs.
The accompanied dive Dhoni takes you to all dive spots.
Whether you are an experienced underwater man or a newbie, floating in the warm waters over the colorful reef always is an out-of-this world adventure.

In the morning snorkeling trips will take place from 10:15Hrs – 11:30Hrs according your itinerary. The snorkeling guide explains all information about the snorkeling spot.
After a day of baking in the sun it’s time to cool down with our afternoon snorkeling session. This one will take place somewhere from 14:30Hrs to 16:30Hrs, just let us know when you are available and your underwater camera is fully charged.
A fantastic way to explore and experience the beauty of marine life in the Maldives is to visits 2 different reefs during a half day trip. Keep your eyes open for a school of snappers, turtles, sting rays, reef sharks and many more exotic creatures.
There’re hand lines available onboard for reef fishing, but a big game fishing trip is an even more exciting and a great adventure. Wahoo, Merlin, Jack Fish, Tuna or Barracuda, these are just a few names of big fish you could hunt for.
Thinking about your freshly prepared sushi already?
Best time of the day to go fishing for the big fish is during sunset and sunrise. Enjoy an exciting start of the day or a romantic sunset trip with a salty and adventurous touch.
At twilight in the Atoll Lagoon, under moon- or starlight we use hand lines and raw fish as bait to catch reef fish. This is an enjoyable night for the family and a very popular activity with all our guests.
From 17:15Hrs to 19:30Hrs you will have the chance to catch most of the fish. Return to the Princess Ushwa with all your “true” fishing tales. The Dhoni (boat) crew will be on hand to help you bringing in your catch.
Imagine the movie ‘Castaway’ but then a little different; wash up at an inhabited island including a crew taking care of you.
Visit the virgin beaches or sand bank to relax and enjoy the pristine nature of the Maldives during the day.
In the evening we organize a BBQ on the uninhabited Island so you can enjoy the view while our chef is flipping (fish) burgers.
During the sunset cocktail party and Beach BBQ Dinner we play local traditional music called BoduBeru to complete the mood. Just sit back, take a swim and relax on your own private island.
One of Yachts&Islands’ missions is to introduce you to the real local culture.
We plan an authentic trip to a fisherman’s island to get to know the everyday life of the Maldivians.
On this 1/2 day trip we visit the local island where you can take a closer look to typical style and traditions of the friendly people.
We show you the historical places, boat building sites and some souvenir shops.
On your last day it is possible to visit Male, the capital of the Maldives.
This island is very much alive and will surprise you with all varieties of souvenir shops, forms of transport, colorful walls, food scents, and smiles.
